First Dead show April '70 Cincy. Been checking out the forum off and on for a year. Favorite year(s) in my collection: 68,69,70,72,73,74,77,and 78 for sheer number of shows for a given year, though all years are represented. 1972 is probably number 1 followed by 1969.

It blew me away then and still does. My first concert ever was seeing Steppenwolf the previous year. My best friends sister was a "hippie" and her boyfriend (also a freak) and her were stuck with us then and they had to take us with them to see the Dead. They told us this was the real deal, not some top 40 pop band. I was really into all types of music then but the Dead were in a class of their own. The people who came to their shows looked like such freaks, the type of people you didn't normally see at that time. Just like they were dropped off from some place that wasn't on any map. The Dead played an acoustic show and I just thought that was what they always did! Ha! Jerry didn't even have a beard at that time. I saw the first Candyman ever played at that show! Here is a link to it:

I just checked out this show again and realize how lucky I was. First Candyman, first Friend Of The Devil, Katie Mae, Cosmic Charlie. Not bad for a first show!

Hey Billy T.,

I joined the Forum about 2 years ago. Joined the Dead on May 4, 1979 at Hampton.

Favorite year has changed recently because of you and GoP. I am now a regular in 69, 79 and 71 and am loving it. After those years would come 1979, 1981.

Nice post.

Oh, and glad to know I "made a difference" as they say (ie, moving you back in time).
